Azanos is a rural town that belongs to the Anaga region in the municipality of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, and is very disturbed by modern buildings, hiding the old houses that have been immersed among them. It has traditional houses from the 16th and 17th centuries.
It is a nucleus located on a hillside within the places of Anaga, in which a spontaneous urban development is observed, without any planning in its layout, leaving traditional houses eclipsed by the blocks of current houses, that rise up to two and three stories high.
In the lower area of Azanos there is an agricultural construction, which was used as a gallan, has a square plan structure and a roof with four waters. It is provided with doors on the facades, which still retain traces of red pigments. There is also a ventilation window at the top.
In the ravine, under the road is a traditional cellar, built in red coarse and covered with a water and adintelada door. This property is attached to a rock.
In the middle area of Azanos there is a set of traditional houses of quite old type of typology to purely Canarian fully integrated into the landscape. Some old houses, including government numbers 10 and 18, present the typical models of the traditional (basic) house of the 16th and 17th centuries. They are built in rough red and their coatings show significant deterioration, revealing the stone of their walls but also their original ocher and red colors, which shows a tradition of color that today is practically obsolete and that must be very interesting to recover it to the detriment of the white color so resorted for several decades.
